Are these really "standard". They aren't used all that consistently across
different applications. From a quick skim of the UI Guidelines I think these
are "standard concepts", not controls.
They do not exist as stand-alone controls in Windows Presentation
Foundation. However, given Control Templates and Styles, it is relatively
trivial to implement the look and feel of these concepts.
